Buy this book together with Approaches to the History of the Interpretation of the Qur’ān by Andrew Rippin
This volume gathers six essays from papers presented at the 3rd Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium on November 19-20, 2010.  The essays explore both the technology of inscribed musical expression in the Middle Ages—especially in regard to notation—and the role that modern digital technologies play in facilitating the study of music manuscripts today. As the manuscript evidence shows, medieval music as written text was both expressive and prescriptive in shaping music-making practices, performance, and reception.
+In recent years, the Qur’ān has come to the forefront of scholarly investigations in Islamic studies. However, the traditional interpretation of the book, commonly termed tafsīr, remains a vast, virtually untapped field of investigation. Many Muslims tend to ignore the material, seeing it as a storehouse of traditional restraints, and scholars frequently gloss over its importance as a historical record of the Muslim community, not appreciating the depth and breadth of the literature. The essays gathered here expose and explore various aspects of the field of tafsīr, and their potential for scholarly research.Save $33.60

Studies in the Historical Syntax of Aramaic by Na’ama Pat-El
Historical syntax has long been neglected in the study of the Semitic languages, although it holds great value for the subgrouping of this diverse language family. Focusing on the development of adverbial subordination, nominal modifiers and direct speech marking, as well as reviewing changes through language contact and drift, this book is the first step in the syntactic reconstruction of the Aramaic dialect group, the longest-attested branch of the Semitic language family.

Notables, Merchants, and Shaykhs of Southern Iran and Its Ports by Thomas Ricks
This book investigates the socio-cultural and maritime history of 18th century – early 19th-century Southern Iran and the Persian Gulf in terms of the merchants, mariners and captains who lived and died in the turbulent waters of the western Indian Ocean. This “uncertain frontier” between a revitalized Ottoman Empire to the west and an emergant British India to the east became a testing grounds for the communities of the Gulf. Generally assumed to be a period of anarchy, the 18th-century maritime peoples resolved differences by marriage, forged alliances, and adapted their mercantile skills to the emerging age of global power.

Syriac Orthography (A Grammar of the Syriac Language, Volume 1) by George Kiraz

The Sentences of the Syriac Menander by David Monaco
The Sentences of the Syriac Menander appears in two Syriac manuscripts in the British Library, a full version in one codex, and a far shorter version, only a small fraction thereof, in another. This book presents a commentary on the text in its complete version focusing on parallels from both Jewish tradition and the Greco-Roman world, showing that the text is not, as it claims, the work of the Greek author Menander, but rather a work of Jewish Wisdom Literature composed in Syriac, possibly in the ancient city of Edessa itself, and preserved within Christian monastic circles.

This volume gathers six essays from papers presented at the 3rd Annual Lawrence J. Schoenberg Symposium held at the University of Pennsylvania and the Free Library of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on November 19-20, 2010. The symposium explored both the technology of inscribed musical expression in the Middle Ages—especially in regard to notation—and the role that modern digital technologies play in facilitating the study of music manuscripts today. As the manuscript evidence shows, medieval music as written text was both expressive and prescriptive in shaping music-making practices, performance, and reception. Digital technologies allow the modern observer to dig deeper into these unique artifacts of musical history. Essays by noted musicologists, including Susan Rankin, Anne Stone, Lauren Jennings, Michael Cuthbert, Julia Craig-McFeely, and Jane Alden, offer valuable insights into the history of medieval music gleaned from early notation practices, codicological evidence, and textual analysis as well as into the value and difficulties of using modern technologies.
